WILMINGTON HIGH SCHOOL 

HOURGLASS '69 



For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter 

under heaven: 
a time to be born, and a time to die; 
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 
a time to kill, and a time to heal; 
a time to break down, and a time to build up; 
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; 
a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 

a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; 
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 
a time to seek, and a time to lose; 
a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 
a time to rend, and a time to sew; 
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 
a time to love, and a time to hate; 
a time for war, and a time for peace. 

Ecclesiastes 3 



For everything there is a season, 

And a time for every purpose under the sun;

To the Class of 1969: 

The School Committee joins with me in saluting one of the truly 
fine classes in Wilmington's long history of graduating classes. 

Your performance in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and 
in the community at large was notable for its dedication, its sin- 
cerity, and its graciousness. 

You have achieved social and economic goals in the past four 
years that were virtually unknown to the classes prior to 1965. 

We extend our best wishes for happiness and success in the 
years ahead.

Hi 



nHW 




1969 will be recorded as the year of dissent on 
college and high school campuses. If one looks 
at dissent as a difference of opinion or a dis- 
agreement, nothing is wrong and no harm is done. 

However, if dissent is implemented with vio- 
lence, personal assault and the destruction of 
property, no useful purpose is served. The per- 
petraters of such violence will fail to accomplish 
their goals and ultimately assure their self-de- 
struction. Further, they promote hypocrisy and 
duplicity by their basic selfishness and the denial 
of the rights, privileges, opinions and voice of 
others. 

Today, more than ever in the history of our na- 
tion and the world, we need good, sound, able 
leaders. Do your best to develop leadership traits 
in your chosen field. The least you should do is 
carry out your individual responsibilities. The 
worst you can do is be a social drop-out. The 
choice is yours! 



Mr. Bernard McMahon, Principal 



Congratulations and best wishes to the graduating class 
of 1 969. 

One of the first milestones in life has been achieved. 
There are many rungs in the ladder of success and of life, 
some of which will be more difficult to climb than others. 

There are many among you to which success will come 
easy. Others will have to exert every ounce of effort and 
still find that they have fallen short of the goal by a small 
margin. Success is based on effort and accomplishment. 
When a person seriously has given his all to that which he 
undertakes, he is successful in his own right. 

Life is a real challenge, spiritually, morally, socially, and 
professionally. Life can be worth living to the individual 
that has the desire to live a good life. What a person will 
put into life is exactly what he will get out of it. 

My sincere best wishes to you graduates for much success 
in the future.

DEDICATION 



tMsxH 




- -\. 






A yearbook dedication is our class's way of giving thanks to 
someone we feel has shared and helped us in our experiences 
of the past four years— someone who has encouraged and 
worked for the benefit of the class. Miss LeBauer, our class 
advisor, is most deserving of this recognition. She has seen 
us through class meetings, dances, proms, a Junior Variety 
Show and sleep-outs. She has been a part of our growth both 
individual and as a class. Her dedication and sincerity has 
made a lasting impression. It is therefore with great pleasure 
that we dedicate the 1969 Hourglass to Miss Alice LeBauer.

VALEDICTORY 




Does it seem society has become too complex? Men 
have just returned from the moon and shortly men will 
land there. Nothing seems to take place today without the 
aid of computers. We are constantly monitored by satel- 
lites whirling about us. Some people feel that even man 
is being turned into a machine by artificial organs. Society 
is complex, but look into the past. 

It seems to us, today, that the horse and buggy days of 
the eighteen hundreds were simple and life was worth 
living. To Henry Thoreau the horse and buggy days were 
complex. He felt the railroad was an iron monster that 
was consuming natural beauty. Thoreau could not keep 
peace with his society so he dropped out for two years to 
live along the banks of Walden Pond. 

At the turn of the century scientists believed man had 
reached his peak of scientific knowledge. They thought 
that all physical laws had been explained. Physicists' only 
job would be to make accurate measurements of physical 
phenomena. In the past twenty years there has been more 
scientific research and discovery than in all the past years 
of man's existence. Rapid development and complications 
have brought us to today's society. 

Let's not be like Thoreau and see a complex society as 
frightening. Society is intricate but it is exciting. Man's 
wish has always been to touch the moon. The lunar landing 
will satisfy man's longest ambition by gaining what was 
thought to be impossible. Man will be unleashing a new 
frontier. 

Computers are every mathematician's dream come true. 
A mathematician will say anyone can do the dog work 
and so the computer does the dog work. Has life become 
any less precious now that artificial devices help man 
function? No! New organs have given people a zest for 
life. Once bedridden patients are now able to enjoy a 
walk down a garden path. These wonderful developments 
have come because of education. 

Our years at Wilmington High are like a diving board 
from which we can spring into society. The graduates of 
today will infiltrate the business world, inhabit the dorms 
of colleges and join in the service of our country. Our 
education will be a growing process to meet the need of a 
complicated world. 

Let's realize today's youth are not shaken by a complex 
world. When the people of this graduating class were in 
the fourth grade, putting a man on the moon was still a 
topic for science fiction writers. The rapid increase in com- 
puter systems has developed during our years in school. 
The men and women of this class are excited to venture 
into the world. The youth of today are eager to learn, to 
grasp and to control their complex, beautiful world.

SALUTATORY 



1969 will no doubt be remembered as the year social ferment in educa- 
tion became universal; as the year of building occupation and often violent 
retaliation; as the year of Brandeis and Harvard and Cornell and People's 
Park at Berkeley. And it will be remembered as the year that college unrest 
began to filter down to the high school level, so that the very structural 
premises of American education as it exists began to be universally 
questioned. 

Some students possess an intense and a sincere feeling of revulsion to- 
ward the unsavory abstractions which relate to the fact of American life. 
They seize on the specific manifestations, the symptoms of these abstractions 
and they regard those symptoms as their immediate nemeses, to be eradi- 
cated at all costs. To some, the action of eradication is essentially reformist; 
to others, it is one first step toward the effect of an upheaval in education 
and society. But whatever the end, it is the means that have been most pub- 
licized, most discussed, most deplored by non-students for they are the his- 
torically familiar tools of violence and disruption. 

Whether or not this disruption is morally justifiable or even effective of its 
ends is immaterial here. It is exclusively the question of the validity of stu- 
dent grievances and the relation of those grievances to education itself that 
I consider. Students have become disenchanted with a society they find op- 
pressive and immersed in fraudulence; they see education as reflective of 
that society, and so they turn on the educational system as a collaborator 
with a corrupt and digarchic bureaucracy. Some of their grievances relate 
to the sociopolitical context of educational evil: the ROTC question; expan- 
sion at Harvard and Columbia; war research. But increasingly, especially 
as high schools become centers of dissension and turbulence the emphasis 
has somewhat shifted to the consideration of evils organic in modern Ameri- 
can education itself. It is these evils, and the question of whether or not they 
exist as such, that I wish to consider. 

The primary fault of education, as the disenchanted students claim, is that 
it consists almost wholly of systematic indoctrination. An orthodoxy reflective 
of the false values of society is instilled, insidiously and often subliminally, 
into grammar school, high school and even college students. Chief among 
the propounded values is that of the achievement ethic. Educators have long 
maintained an overblown consciousness of tangible achievement, and have 
regarded numerical competition, obvious academic superiority and the 
acquisition of educational prestige as compulsions, if not end-alls. Moreover, 
students have been indoctrinated into acceptance of the rightness and the 
unimpeachable normalcy of this situation. They have been systematically 
prepared for later participation in a society frantically oriented toward get- 
aheadism and materiality; they have been educated so that they may ulti- 
mately assume a secure position in the American social hierarchy. To get a 
good job, get a good education, runs the ad, thereby epitomizing the 
lamentable distortion of educational objectives. The simplistic statement "we 
learn to earn" is unfortunately too accurate. 



114 



■ 



The achievement consciousness coincides neatly with another major griev- 
ance of students in secondary schools and colleges. This latter involves the 
estrangement of modern education from its enlightened education induces 
pleasure, for it involves the awakening and the expansion of thought 
processes, the stimulation of opinion, the challenge of conceptual and ma- 
nipulative thought. But education as it chiefly exists is routine, dogmatic, 
stifling, antithetical to the encouragement of free thinking, and effective of 
a perpetuation of false values. No wonder, then, that students consider it 
inconceivable that they should ever derive pleasure from learning through 
such a system. Primary and secondary education has its basis in rote learn- 
ing, conventional structures, authoritarian multi-rules. There is allowed no 
room for change or serious question of a system which, though obsolete, 
perpetuates itself. Before we consider the relation of education to the evils, 
perhaps organic in society, we must realize that it is the very structure and 
character of the educational system that allows for such a relation. 

If education's supposed evils do indeed exist, as I here submit, then we 
must hope that they are eradicable. I for one consider that there exists a 
need for thorough upheaval in the educational system. Priorities must be 
realigned so that the objectives of learning become, not preparation for the 
eventual Rat Race, but personal gratification, development, maturity, stimu- 
lation and pleasure. Experimentation in educational methods should be a 
commonplace. Dogmas should be discarded; the expression of ideas, the 
formulation of personal ideologies, should be encouraged. Variances among 
individuals should be considered in judging academic progress. Contem- 
porary problems which touch on students lives should be a free and vital 
part of curricula. Intellectual confrontation, reassessment of the teacher- 
students roles, rejection of indoctrination methods, should all become the 
province of educational innovators who should radically alter the character 
of American learning. In San Francisco, in Philadelphia, in Newton, and in 
other cities and towns across America, such progressive education, involving 
such ideals and alterations, has been attempted with generally remarkable 
success ."Progressive" students enjoy their schools, and emerge from them 
thoughtful individuals, not efficiently programmed automatons. Though I do 
not advocate social revolution, as do some of my contemporaries, I do feel 
that educational revolution is necessary. Stopgap reforms are not enough. 
Only when the schools are everywhere and fundamentally altered will edu- 
cation become relevant, pleasurable, and true to its professed ideals. 

The unrest becoming widespread among high school and college students 
expresses a felt disenchantment with abstracted wrongs, of which our school 
systems are symptomatic. Students are now realizing, however, that the 
specific relation between educational policy and society's ills derives from 
the very nature of the structure of the educational systems— which, in turn, 
derives probably from the nature of society. Thus a prelude to the oblitera- 
tion of sociopolitico immorality must be to total upheaval in education— so 
that earning is elevated from an experience in enforced orthodoxy to an 
awakening and a radical enlightenment.

ESSAY 




116 



Most of us have been taught that peace is an interval 
between wars; a short time when people try to live in unity 
with each other. Our impressions of what peace is are as 
varied as the ways we search for it. Some of us may find it 
in a glass of alcohol or a joint of marijuana. Others may 
find it in their secure suburban homes. What would your 
reaction be to finding peace in Christ? For the most part, 
this solution would be unfavorable. I doubt it would be un- 
favorable because it's a solution that has already been 
tried. We've looked everywhere else for peace and can't 
seem to find it. 

There is no one word that can define peace adequately. 
It is radiated by a radical they called Christ. I'm not talk- 
ing about the Christianity that is looked upon as hypo- 
critical or sometimes indifferent— the Christianity that the 
world often sees. The Christianity I mean is one where a 
person can find total or perfect peace and one that can 
create a sureness of the future. Peace that comes from a 
very basic relationship with someone else where the im- 
portant thing exchanged is love, for one can't exist without 
the other. 

Each of us is a complicated being with too much fear to 
enter openly into any situation. And yet we turn around 
and wonder why the world is in such turmoil. Our hope is 
that the future will hold everything, and therefore the 
present is put aside. There is really no reason to wonder 
why kids are on drugs or why the suicide rate continually 
increases. These people are asking, "What's there to life?" 
These people are searching for some kind of peace but 
not finding it. 

Is there an answer? Could it come from a person who 
never lived in this age? No, not as long as we stay self- 
centered. Not as long as we care more about ourselves 
than anyone or anything else. Not as long as we continue 
to destroy peace by waging wars. To reach out and com- 
mit ourselves to something definite may be giving up a lot. 
And for what? A person who is intangible and unreal? We 
want material peace which we're never going to have. 
Our society is running a race. A race where we never slow 
down long enough to see where we're going. Our aim has 
to be to create not manufacture peace. 

High school today is four fast, interesting years. Part of 
us is being moulded— part of our future is being formed. 
Will peace effect that future? What will we use as a basis 
then? Other ways have been tried and have failed. Our 
search continues. If you're searching everywhere else, then 
you may have nothing to lose. Real faith in Christ will only 
cause you to lose the need to search further and cause you 
to gain peace. 

Today, the question in your minds is what will we do 
with our futures? A better question is what will we do with 
the present? Peace is a now thing. It cannot be put off. 
The world doesn't need a solution for tomorrow, it des- 
perately needs one today. And that solution won't come 
from the person beside you. Each of us has to find his own 
peace that will work for the present. If that happens, the 
future will work itself out.

CLASS PROPHECY 

Welcome to Laugh-ln's news of the future. The year is 1979 and the scene 
is the Wilmington High School cafeteria where the class of '69 is forced to 
hold its reunion because the officers were never quite able to collect all the 
dues. The class of '69, although it perhaps has not been the most successful, 
has proven itself the most diversified. They have branched themselves out 
into many fields: entertainment, athletic, educational, medical and political. 

Let's first focus our attention on Judy Connors, who is standing in the far 
end of the room, skis in one hand and a first aid kit in the other. As you 
have probably already guessed, Judy is involved in sports. She now has her 
own ski school where she teaches her new way to go down the slopes, by 
chair lift. Talking with Judy are Pam Smith and Anne Barry who are pres- 
ently working for Judy as her ski patrol rescuing her students. Pam, by the 
way, has just returned from a two year hitch in the Peace Corps. (She was 
stationed in the wilds of Tewksbury.) 

I see many here tonight who have entered the entertainment field. In fact, 
Beth Emery was Laugh-ln's very own "Discovery of the Week" last week. 
She did her snail immitation for us. Declan Berkley and Nancy Forrest are 
also here. They play opposite each other once again, but this time on Broad- 
way, he as an usher and she as an usherette. Alison Cox and Lucy Gion- 
frido, who made their television debut as extras on the Phyllis Diller Show, 
now appear regularly as part of the audience on the Ed Sullivan Show. Pat 
Cote has become a dancer and is at this time a member of the Reading 
Ballet Company. The circus has claimed some of the members of the class. 
Mary Hurley has fulfilled her ambitions and is now a fat lady in the circus. 
Ray DeCecca, who was one of the graceful ballerinos in the Junior Variety 
Show, now does his act atop a galloping elephant. 

You are now viewing Linda Lurvey who is in the process of jogging around 
the cafeteria. Linda, who has always excelled in physical education, is 
presently an assistant to Miss McCarthy. Jane Emery, who has entered the 
teaching profession, is leading her students in a revolt against the adminis- 
tration. She feels strongly that kindergarten students should have a voice in 
school policies. Chris Simard is currently a French teacher using the Baran 
method. She opens all the windows in the middle of winter and then tries 
to demoralize her students by wearing a sleeveless dress and complaining 
of the heat. 

Bob Stewart holds a coaching position at Wilmington where he is the 
coach of the bench warmers of the Wilmington Hockey Team. Speaking of 
teachers it has just been announced that Mr. Kelley, who once used Paul 
Kritter to measure the blackboard space, has succeeded in getting the United 
States to accept a Kritter as a standard of measurement. 

There's Ed Thomas. Ed had just about finished the house of his dreams 
when he had a little set back. It seems that it was a victim of the mud slides 
in California. His house, which was once on the top of a hill, is now at the 
bottom of the ocean. Ed is undaunted, however, for he has given up his 
motorcycle for scuba diving gear. Standing next to Ed you can see Gerry 
Land on your TV screen. Gerry is a dentist with Gretchen Piatt as his assis- 
tant. They are at the present time working at a teacher's clinic where their 
specialty is pulling teeth. 

Many here tonight are involved in the world of politics and local govern- 
ment. Paul Winchell and Morris Anderson have done a complete "about 
face" and are now leaders in the SDS movement. Tony Beatrice, Barbara 
Moloney, Jimmy Swisher, and Lorraine Boudreau, who were members of 
the student school committee, are at this time members of the actual Wil- 
mington School Committee and have issued a series of decrees. First of all, 
Jimmy Swisher has been made honorary chaperone for the Senior New 
York trip because of his excellent behavior on the class of '69's trip. Sec- 
ondly, there will be no more assemblies practicing for assemblies unless of 
course there is practice for the practice assemblies. 

There are many more here tonight and much more to say but time 

limits us, so that's all for the news tonight, folks.

CLASS WILL 

As the graduating class of 1969 makes its way out of Wilmington High 
School, they pass many rooms in which many memories were made. As we 
walk through for the last time, we might start at the end of the wing where 
Mr. Dicey's drafting classes were held. For those classes, Manuel Griffin 
leaves his pencil to the top freshman draftsman, hoping that it brings him 
the great achievements as it brought Manuel. Dave Polsey leaves to Al 
Volenti and Paul Winchell all the MacDonald frappes that he ate. To Steve 
Catalano, Jack leaves a set of engineering notes. 

On the other side of the hall is the music room, where Vita Marie Sinopoli 
leaves a whole rack of choir robes to Debbie Dayton, and Dave Polsey 
leaves behind all of the football music. 

On our way out, we pass several "Girls" and "Boys" rooms billowing 
with black curls of smoke. In the girls' room by 215, Janice Mclnnis leaves 
a carton of cigarettes to Patty Graves who is also left in charge of putting 
out all of the fires by Lois DelNinno, and from the boys' room, Tony 
Beatrice, not to be outdone, leaves 4,000 pounds of cigarette butts in the 
ventilation system. The home-ec rooms have had their share of billowing 
smoke, and Gail Smith leaves the "wonderfulness" of Mrs. Kanchuga's 
classes to all senior home-ec students. 

We go by the art room next, where oil paint is profusely running from 
under the door. This is the room where Debbie Shine leaves her imagination 
to Eddie Alexander and the room itself to the new freshmen. Susan Winters 
leaves an I.O.U. of $2.00 to the art club c/o Miss Kulisich. 

At the end of the first floor wing we find a guidance office, or so it is 
named. This is the one where Karen Mirowski leaves her seat to anyone who 
can skip as many classes as she did. 

We see, straight ahead now, the foyer and entrance to the auditorium. 
Left behind is the Junior Variety Show, where the fond memories of Ray 
DiCecca, Ed Gillis, and Bill Montouri in the fairy dance are left in our minds. 
Also, in memory of the Senior Class Play, Debbie Russell leaves the re- 
hearsals to anyone willing to put up with the director's frustrations. Vita 
Marie Sinopoli leaves the aggravation of building the sets for the next play 
to anyone; Don Garland leaves a bottle of Excedrin to the same person. 
The rehearsals are left by Nancy Forrest to any else. 

We round the corner and pass the language labs where Dave Roberts 
leaves all the clocks behind. We pass by many more rooms and eventually 
come to the office. This is where Charley Southmayd would like to leave an 
alarm clock for students who are constantly late. On the other side of the 
coin, Susan Winters leaves her sisters, Trishe and Paula, to keep up the 
family tradition of tardiness. 

On the way out, we must pass through the cafeteria; the scene of many 
a mob and several near food poisonings. Dave Olson leaves the lunches for 
the birds, and Janice Mclnnis leaves a pair of non-slip shoes for running to 
lunch. Also is left much gossip over the lunch tables. But we must move on. 

We pass the gym, where we might catch the moans and grunts of kids 
pretending to be animals as they crawl acros sthe floor. Allen Williams 
leaves one mangled, extra large jump rope for an unfortunate gymnast 
along with a half can of Right Guard to the deprived class of '71. Gail 
Smith gladly leaves all the aches and pains of gym class to Joan and 
Jeanette Arsenault. Debbie leaves her gym class and many excuses for get- 
ting out, and Lorraine Boudreau leaves her old worn out gym suit to a cer- 
tain freshman. But the gym has been the birthplace of some of the finest 
teams in the Merrimac Valley. We remember our great football team— and, 
for bruised players, Ray Dicecca leaves his football helmet to be converted 
into a whirlpool bath, and Buddy Chamberlain leaves a rubber duck for 
Jimmy Irwin to play with in the whirlpool. Eddie Gillis leaves his football 
cleats to his brother Dick. David O'Connell leaves his fabulous football and 
hockey talent to Mike Esposito. Billy Montouri leaves a flashing red light to 




MKRt

^B 



the Burlington goalie, and Bob Stewart and Andy Sullivan leave their seats 
on the hockey bench to those who think they can fill them. From the basket- 
ball team, Allen Williams leaves one pair of knee pads in fair condition to 
Alan Heim, and also to Alan, Gary Hebsch leaves his worn out basketball 
socks. If the socks are washed, they will carry him through the entire season 
without any "offensive" complaints. For our cheerleaders, Elaine Leduc 
leaves the football cheerleading squad to next year's captain; Bonny Bishop 
leaves her cheerleading captain's uniform to a deserving senior and the 
cheerleading squad to Miss Bochino. Yes, we all remember our great rallies 
and games, and the good times we had. 

We remember the math department, our science department, and the 
English and history departments. Don Garland leaves the fifth seat, last 
row to the next kid who gets Mr. Jones for math three years straight. Pam 
Hadfield leaves her unused advanced math book to Mr. Lynch to give to 
someone who plans to use it; Jack Lee leaves one unused geometry book 
to anyone. From our framed science department many students leave .. . . 
Lorraine Boudreau leaves her cruddy biology book to anyone who can find 
a use for it. Sylvina Kemp leaves her vitamins to Mr. Krey. Gary Hebsch 
leaves his fantastic brain to Dr. Farello and the biology lab so they can 
figure out how he managed to get out of W.H.S. To Miss Lehan, Dave Olson 
leaves five pre-med. students that could possibly pass her course in Biology 
II. Ray DiCecca and Dave Esielionis leave to Dr. Farello one box of two-hole 
rubber stoppers, and all of her physics classes leave a protractor. 

We also remember our fine English department. To Mrs. Aldrich, Dave 
Polsey leaves all the vocabulary words that he forgot. To Mrs. Cronin, Deb- 
bie Shine leaves a can of oil for her hair in room 219. Charles Southmayd 
leaves a whip to Mrs. Dolkart to help her control her classes. 

Also, we have our history department, famed for its P.O.D. teachers and 
class advisors. We all leave much thanks to Miss LeBauer for helping us all 
out. Debbie Russell leaves Mr. Cripps her brother Rick. Mr. Roche is left a 
bottle of pep pills by Dave Olson, which reminds us of the New York trip. 
Renee LaVallee leaves next year's trip for the kids to have fun on. Don 
Garland leaves an empty glass in room 394 of the Taft Hotel. 

The class of '69 also leaves many good friends inside the walls of W.H.S. 
Dave Palsey leaves to Harry Latter all of the snow he didn't use. Debbie 
Shine leaves a large bottle of tranquilizers to Mr. Jones, who taught her to 
drive. Tony Beatrice leaves four tons of Head and Shoulders to Mr. Cripps; 
a fine tooth comb for Mr. McMahon to comb the hair which Dave Esielionis 
leaves him; and a shot gun, some tear gas, and a bull whip for Mr. Garrett. 
Gretchen Piatt leaves her foot which is always in her mouth to Mr. Cripps, 
and a king size bottle of Johnson's Baby Powder to those in need. Jimmy 
Swisher leaves one cup of "Hot Mustard" to Mary Alice and a poor excuse 
to Jane, the hope that her senior year was as good as his was. To Gary 
Nelson, one banana royal, compliments of the house. Renee LaVallee leaves 
Carl Cotter for no one. Pam Hadfield leaves the gum she has chewed to 
Mr. Kelly (may he enjoy it without interruption). Gary Nelson leaves bunches 
of sunshine to Dotti Castaldo and Susan Brown, to be used without suntan 
lotion, sunglasses, or horoscope books. Gerry Land leaves all his questions 
to another inquisitive person for teachers like Mr. Kelley. Lorraine Boudreau 
leaves all the grunties to Sonja and Syd. Alison Cox leaves her Paris 
Originals shoes to Mr. Kelley for any track runner who likes to keep up with 
the styles, and Judy Connors leaves her license to the Registry of Motor 
Vehicles before she damages anything else. 

But, altogether, the Class of '69 leaves Wilmington High School for the 
last time, with much forgotten, but much remembered. We hope that other 
classes will have as good a time being ourselves as we did.

CLASS HISTORY 



As June approaches this year, many seniors will breathe a sigh of relief 
and say to themselves, "It's finally over." The majority will go on their own 
separate ways— be it college or to seek fortune in various occupations. 
Everyone, however, who has been a member of the class of '69, will re- 
member it in later years as one of the most, if not the most spirited and ac- 
complished class in many a year. The memories of dances, shows, and 
special friends, along with a lot of hard work, will never leave us. I'm sure 
everyone has heard it said that high school is supposed to be the most en- 
joyable years of a person's life. With a class such as we had, how can this 
saying be false? Although we now seek bigger things, a fond memory of 
our school and our class will be forever transfixed within us. 

As freshmen, we entered Wilmington High as timid underclassmen. The 
school's surroundings and atmosphere were like a new world to many of us. 
A world of many classrooms and long corridors, bounded by brick walls on 
all sides. As the weeks progressed, the freshmen fell into place and became 
accustomed to an occasional superior remark by the upper classes. We all 
dreamed of the day when the situation would be reversed. The major ac- 
tivity of the year was the election of class officers. The top brass were Ed 
Gillis, President; Jerry Land, Vice President; Charley Southmayd, Secretary; 
and Declan Berkley, Treasurer. 

We returned the following September once again to Wilmington High. 
We were a little more experienced and our rule over the Freshmen provided 
revived confidence. Our class advisor for the Sophomore year, was Miss 
Alice LeBauer. Her capabilty and sincere understanding won her the same 
position in the Junior and Senior years. Gary Warford was the only new 
officer elected. He served as Treasurer. The value of class participation re- 
vealed itself as plans for the Sophomore Dance were made. The dance was 
entitled, "Ho Ho a Go Go," and was held December 17, 1966. A fun time 
was had by all. Many students busied themselves in school activities re- 
quiring knowledge that would soon mould them into leaders. 

The Junior year marked the beginning of the development of the class of 
'69. An awareness of what was really happening in our school took hold of 
us all. The many activities held provided, perhaps, the best year in high 
school for us. Class elections gave Ed Gillis the Presidency for the third 
straight year. Equally as successful was Jerry Land in his bid for the Vice 
Presidency. Bob Stewart was our new Secretary and Charley Southmayd 
moved from Secretary to Treasurer. Our class rings were distributed and 
worn with ride. The Junior Prom, "One Very Special Moment," was held at 
the Montvale Plaza on April 5, 1968. A few energetic members held a 
beach party the following day. 

For one brief week, the class was given its freedom. Dress-Up day occu- 
pied Tuesday, May 7. Many of the members took part. Suits and ties were 
in abundance. Tuesday night, the scene was the North Intermediate School. 
Approximately 300 persons attended the Junior Banquet. The school com- 
mittee, the administration, teachers and parents were present. The highlight 
of the evening was the presentation of academic awards. Hippe-Day fol- 
lowed on Wednesday with costumes ranging from an Indian Guru to a 
Hard Rock Guitarist. Bell bottoms and beads were prevalent. Thursday was 
Sounds of Silence Day. No one was supposed to speak. The costume for the 
day was a blue shirt and a white arm band. The week was highlighted by 



Crazy Day. A parade was initiated by the Juniors. The route was Weinberg's 
to the High School, via Church Street. 

The class presented its Junior Variety Show at the Herbert C. Barrows 
Auditorium on the nights of May 10 and 11. Previewed were comedy acts 
of all types, ballerina dances, TV shows, and a real live rock band. The 
show, under the direction of Mr. Robert Cripps, was a smash and a happy 
ending to a fun-filled Junior year. 

Thus, we have arrived in September as Seniors. We were now the un- 
disputed heroes. Leaders of the school. We had attained the dream we had 
sought for as Freshmen. Ed Gillis, once again, was elected President. Paul 
Kritter succeeded Jerry Land in the Vice President's position, Jimmy Swisher 
became our new Secretary and Charley Southmayd remained Treasurer. 
Our class advisor, as she had been for four years, was none other than Miss 
LeBauer. The Senior Class held two dances this year. The first was a Hal- 
loween Dance on October 26. The dance was indeed profitable adding one 
hundred nine dollars to the class treasury. Other money was raised by a 
canteen put on at home basketball games. 

Pride in the class flourished especially during the Senior year. Much em- 
phasis was placed on sports and extra-curricular activities. Congratulations 
were indeed in order for the football team, finishing as co-champions of the 
conference. This team was exemplary of the outstanding success enjoyed by 
Wilmington High in football for many years. Special credit should be given 
to our very capable and determined coach, Mr. Bellissimo, who has indeed 
made much of it possible. 

Success was enjoyed also by our fine Hockey Team which ended up 
champions of the Merrimac Valley Conference, not to underestimate the 
Basketball and Track Teams which both enjoyed very respectable seasons. 

Many Seniors' theatrical talents were shown off as the class presented its 
Senior Play under the vt'y capable direction of Mr. Lewis Gardner. It was 
entitled, "An Italian Straw Hat," a French comedy superiorly acted by the 
cast. Our class dance was held in mid February and it featured the heavy 
hard rock and blues sound of "Walk on Water." All in attendance were in- 
troduced to some of the greatest musical talent ever to step foot on the gym 
floor of Wilmington High. May 16 marks the sign-out for many Seniors who 
hold jobs; the remainder will exist until June. 

The Senior Prom, held on May 23, had to be the social event of the year. 
Its setting, that of Crane's Castle in Ipswich, could not be topped. The name, 
"A Moment in May," was very appropriate. Unlike all formals, it will surely 
bring back fond remembrances in all the years to come. 

The Senior banquet was held on June 12. Many were in attendance to 
mark the closing of four unforgettable years. June 15, 1969, brought to a 
close the Class of '69. The Valedictory was given by Edward Thomas. The 
presentation of diploma sfollowed as friends gathered to say goodbye to 
each other and to a school which had been their horne for four important 
and inspiring years. 

May the class of 1969 always be remembered for its achievements, char- 
acter, and spirt as we, the Seniors, bid Good-bye to Wilmington High 
School.
